Not in a time demo or in-game benchmark. In open game play , yes absolutely it can. That's why you do multiple runs, and over a longer time frame, so that your average FPS is closer to what it actually should be. In a short clip or 20 second play through, you could have events that spike or drop your framerate for a couple seconds. That will have more of an impact on the average framerate in a short run, while the effect would tend to be minimized in a longer run.
